These young men are dead wrong, yet at the same time our socialist government continues to subsidize business that manufactures products in China and other foreign countries. Manufacturing was a very important part of our economy. Perhaps if these boys could find a decent paying job they would not have turned to crime. Not everyone will be a doctor ,lawyer,engineer,or govt. worker. Fast food and retail jobs just do not cut it.

Good grief, did the spoon make them fat too?
You gotta be kidding, these are just stupid kids, stealing and worse yet, how much damage did they do to the tracks, if they had not been caught this load, if is entirelypossibe ta they cold take more and cause the deaths of alot of people when the train derails.
Blame the parents of these rotten kids, not the government.
You cant blame everything of government, you CAN blame their actions on THEM!
There are plenty of jobs, maybe no high paying jobs but certainly one they can work at and save some dollars towards leaving the area or getting college educations.
Throw them in the tank, let them figure out that life living on our dime with free housing meals nd guards might not be a livin either!

There are people all over town with Bachelor and Masters degrees waiting tables,stocking shelves,and working at other menial low paying jobs. College is not what it used to be, too many chiefs not enough indians.

Things are going to get even worse yet. Analysts are calling the coming years the After Shock, America is printing a ton of new money and spending it even faster. Without mincing words analysts are predicting 2014 to be possibly even worse yet for the economy and jobs in America. NAFTA (North American Free Trade Act) is killing America, America has lost 3 million manufacturing jobs in the last 10 years due to NAFTA, most manufacturers are re establishing themselves in Mexico, yet Mexico's minimum wage is the lowest its ever been. What could this be? hmmm, lobbyist and private interest in government. The old waxing of the palms. American government not looking out for US the American people. Not only manufacturing jobs have we lost but the outsourcing of computer technology jobs sent to India etc. POVERTY IS BECOMING AN EPIDEMIC. The middle class is slowly disintegrating. We all know someone if not ourselves who have been layed off or flat out lost their jobs. The reliance on food stamps has increased and other public assistance programs. And its a proven fact that with poverty comes an increase in CRIME.

The great king Obama gave our hard earned tax dollars to bail out GM and Chrysler, both companies have moved the bulk of their manufacturing to Mexico using all that bail out money to build new plants south of the border. While American cities like Detroit are going to ruin.
